What is Laughter Yoga? Laughter Yoga is a concept that anyone can laugh at any given time without humor, jokes or comedy. Laughter, real or stimulated has been scientifically proven to make us more energetic and healthier. Laughter yoga combines laughter exercises with yoga breathing. We initiate laughter as an exercise in a group but with eye contact and childlike playfulness, it soon turns into real and contagious laughter.
Developed by Madan Kataria, M.D. in 1995. Forced or fake laughter turns genuine as inhibitions are broken down and individuals relax and have fun with the experience. There are many mental, physical and emotional benefits attributed to the practice of Laughter Yoga. Mood elevates. Stress, depression and tension decrease. Laughing feels good when done in a group. No mats required, comfortable clothing and a childlike playfulness are all you need. All are welcome! Class passes can be used or drop in rates apply.
